Former Baltimore County Public Schools Superintendent Dallas Dance is under investigation for his relationship with a firm that had contracts with BCPS, the Baltimore Sun is reporting.
“According to sources, state prosecutors have been delving into Dance’s involvement with SUPES Academy, a now-defunct Illinois-based company that trained principals in school districts across the country, including Baltimore County. The sources spoke to The Baltimore Sun on condition of anonymity because the investigation is continuing,” the paper reported. See the full story here.
In 2014, Dance was found to be in violation of the BCPS ethics code for acting as a paid consultant to SUPES Academy, which came just after BCPS signed an $875,000 contract with the company.
The STAT-us BPCP group, a “grassroots education coalition working to slow down the high-tech takeover of Baltimore County Public Schools,” also has further details in this post, including finding this recent promotional video of Dance:
